Overall charming place. Really liked the fire patches on the walls. Food was fast and good. Rating 4 stars due to only 1 refill allowed on soft drinks.

Nice, hometown feel to this spot, with the walls decorated with firefighter badges (National Fallen Firefighters Memorial is just down the road). Enjoyed the ample hot turkey sandwich and a local IPA.
